Taking place in a post-apocalyptic landscape in the Northern Canadian Rockies, The Darwin Project offers a competitive multiplayer third-person experience with an emphasis on survival.

As civilization prepares for an impending ice age, a twisted new project emerges, half science experiment and half live-entertainment. It's called Darwin Project and it challenges participants to survive the cold and fight to the death in a treacherous, snow-covered arena.

Darwin Project takes the battle royale genre up north to the Canadian Rockies. Set against a post-apocalyptic backdrop, an impending ice age has kick-started a twisted new reality show, in which participants must fight to the death to earn their survival. Other combatants won’t be players’ only worries though, as the harsh climate will put even the most hardened survivalists to the test.

Darwin Project offers a competitive multiplayer third-person experience with an emphasis on survival. Players must withstand extreme environmental conditions, track opponents, craft tools, set traps, and even negotiate temporary alliances to be the last one standing at sunrise.

Scavengers Studio kicked off Darwin Project’s first Closed Alpha Weekend on PC with the end of coverage embargo dark days, the first installment of its Dev Diary video series, and some exciting new details about the game’s future.

Are you ready for three straight days of snowbound manhunting?

Start: Friday, November 10 @ 9:00am Pacific / Noon Eastern

End: Sunday, November 12 @ 9:00pm Pacific / Midnight Eastern

Not able to make your debut on the battlefield this weekend? No problem! Scavengers has you covered. Chief survivalist (and game director) Simon Darveau will be on-hand to answer viewers’ questions as part of a special Dev Stream on Twitch. Even better? He’ll be using this as an opportunity to show off Darwin Project’s Show Director feature and give an inside look at what the future holds for it, allowing players to embrace their inner power trip and turn the tide of battle. Be sure to tune in Sunday, November 12 from 3:00pm to 5:00pm Eastern Time for all the juicy details!

Darwin Project is currently in closed pre-alpha and slated for launch on Xbox One and PC in spring 2018.
